We are pleased to announce that the Nottingham Interdisciplinary Centre for Economic and Political Research (NICEP) inaugural conference will be held at The University of Nottingham, UK on 20-21 June 2016.
NICEP promotes interdisciplinary research at the cross roads between Economics and Politics in four main areas: representation, political behavior, political economy and public policy, and quality of government. Theoretical and empirical papers related to these areas are particularly welcome.
The conference will host invited sessions with the following confirmed speakers: Timothy Besley (LSE), Catherine De Vries (Oxford), Andrew Hall (Stanford), Adam Meirowitz (Princeton), Massimo Morelli (Bocconi), James Snyder (Harvard).
The conference will be a medium size event (40-50 participants) that, in addition to the invited sessions, will include small panels allowing time for discussion. Conference dinner and accommodation expenses for presenters will be covered by NICEP.
The submission of complete papers is encouraged, but extended abstracts will also be considered. The deadline for submission is 1 March 2016. Prospective participants should submit their proposal on the conference webpage.
